    I have a lower end Delonghi. I may not be the person to ask, as I have a remarkably unsophisticated coffee palate, but for ease of use, it's great, and it's made it 3 years of pretty consistent use with no issues.

    Help me pick out new glasses! The glare is there for the trials because I couldn't see to avoid it, lol. Yes I know the last one is crooked; also blaming that on blindness.

    If you don't have a favorite, tell me the "hell no" vote!

    I like #1 then #5. I thought 1 was clear (on my phone so the pics are tiny) until I saw your comment.

    No, I’m an idiot. #1 looked like clear acrylic frames on my phone. I still like them, though. It’s a great shape on you.

    #1 is actually my current pair! It's gold colored is juuuust off-tone for my skin. I wonder if I can spray paint them silver. I'm definitely getting #5, too, because it was also the favorite here. The frames are all Asian/alternative fit.

    Prob too late, but jumping on 1 and 5. That rounded rectangular shape is very fetching on you.

    So I'm considering spray painting #1 frames from gold to something else. Are first I was gonna go w boring silver because I'm boring but realized I can choose whatever.

    White? Red? Maybe a not-quite-navy blue?

    What’s you favorite color, @Lh718? Maybe you can paint them that color. I like a good metallic so I would go with something like that (you could even do a metallic navy) but I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.

    My only concern there would be peeling and how comfortable they will feel painted

    I need shoe help. I have finally hit the point in my life where I cannot wear TOMS all day at school anymore. I was looking for cute comfortable shoes and found a pair of Dansko that I love. The sole looks like wood but it's not so it’s easier to walk and drive in.

    It’s going to start getting colder soon and I want something similar but with a closed heel. I’m having a hard time finding anything other than the Dansko Beatrice. They’re cute but I’m worried they might be too clunky. I’m going to give them a try but if any Chickens know of other brands that have comfortable shoes that are also cute/stylish, please let me know! I’ve found some cute ones but they have wooden soles which won’t work for me.

    Thank you! I'll check them out.

    Rockport Cobb Hill is worth checking out too. Some of their stuff is orthopedic looking, but some is vintage-y. I have some beautiful t-straps from them that are really comfy.

    I see Dansko clogs at work all the time, and people just love them! They also have all sorts of patterns and styles available if you're not anti-clogs. I also love Clarks for comfort and durability.

    ETA: the compromise could also be fancy/orthopedic inserts in cuter shoes.
